Sam Raimi Returns to Horror!

Sunday, March 8, 2009

While browsing along IMDB, I stumbled upon that Sam Raimi is making a return to Horror! For those who don’t know who Sam Raimi is, he is most famous for being the director of the Spider-Man movies, but before he ever helmed the teenager in red and blue tights he did three films that redefined the Horror genre; Evil Dead 1 and 2, and The Army of Darkness. These films are filled with gore, humor, fantastic action and still manage to give a chill down your spine. Those films are still among my favorite horror movies, and I’m so delighted that Mr. Raimi is making a comeback to the genre he so greatly had an impact on.

Here’s the premise of the movie (courtesy of IMDB):

“A loan officer (Lohman) ordered to evict an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse, who turns her life into a living hell. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.”

Can’t wait to catch this when it comes out in theaters on May 29th!
